  2. Team strategy comprehension and execution 
  3. Athletic abilities

Wall Ball Workouts

Through out the course of the summer we will add in three Wall Ball Workouts.  Wall Ball is how we improve our stick skills.  It's something every lacrosse player does.  Normally, players perform Wall Ball Workouts on their own, but at Bama Elite we want our players to be the best.  So we want to teach our athletes about the importance of performing Wall Ball Workouts on their own and how to get the most out of each workout.
